It is difficult to differentiate auditory processing disorder from auditory comprehension skills and auditory attention difficulties.
SCAN-3 helps you identify specific auditory processing difficulties in adolescents and adults. Based on the pattern of an individual’s test results, this tool can help you plan intervention to minimise the impact of the auditory processing disorder at school, work, home and in the community.
Content & Administration
SCAN-3 provides the following tests to help you evaluate key indicators of auditory processing ability in adolescents and adults:
- NEW! Gap Detection—Indicates presence of a temporal processing problem which may influence the ability to comprehend running speech
- Auditory Figure Ground (+0 dB)—Tests ability to listen with background noise
- Competing Words (Free Recall)—Dichotic listening task (poor performance may indicate lack of maturation or abnormality of the auditory nervous system)
- Filtered Words—Indicates ability to process speech when the signal is distorted or compromised by a poor acoustic environment
- Competing Words (Directed Ear)—Dichotic listening task that indicates a child’s auditory maturation or developmental level
- Competing Sentences—Provides information about the maturation of the nervous system
- Auditory Figure Ground (+8 dB and +12 dB)
- NEW! Time Compressed Sentences
SCAN-3 features updated norms and continuous normative scores across SCAN-3 Child and Adolescent/Adult editions so that you can continue to monitor progress as the child ages out of the SCAN-3 for children.
